D.A. Race Predictions **UPDATED**

Here's how I think the election will breakdown by around 11 p.m. tomorrow night:
5th place: Michael Turner 5 pct.
4th place: Brian Grady 18 pct.
3rd place: Dan McCaffery 20 pct.
2nd place: Dan McElhatten 28 pct.
1st place: Seth Williams 29 pct.

* Side note: Somebody with Williams' campaign just texted and suggested that I should, "Call my friends call my neighbors. The best way to make Philadelphia safer is to vote for Seth."
Well, I'm not injecting myself into the endorsement game this time -- the candidate I'll be voting for already thanked me for my support over the weekend, and said he understands that I have friends on a few of the campaigns so am loathe to jump in, especially with my busted-up head.
But, if any of the campaigns want to have their message added to this very basic and simple post, by all means text or email.

UPDATE: Just heard from a person who supports someone not named Williams for D.A. Here's what she had to succinctly declare: "”Dan McCaffery is the only choice for DA.”

The Silent Majority is going to come out and vote for Michael Turner. He's the best, most qualified candidate and it's going to be a shocker.

Michael struck me as a very intelligent candidate when we spoke; thought he'd make a fine D.A.
But will he be able to overcome the name-recognition and lack-of-ad-money drawbacks? The prediction-making side of me says no. You're right: It would be a shocker, and I wouldn't have a beef with it. (If it does happen, hope he gets more cash, or Untermeyer might take him.)
